Turtle Cream and Pig-Min Agency have been more than satisfied with their initial sales through Steam for Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory. Having only been available on Steam for 2 days, their game has already sold more copies than all other avenues combined over the past 9 months. This does bring a little more truth to Edmund McMillen’s famous quote about the famous service, “Steam is **cking power house.”
Sun Park, CEO of Turtle Cream, had this to say about the unexpected sales: ”We already knew Steam is big marketplace because we bought & enjoyed many games. But we never knew it’s so surprisingly big! It’s like that we launched brand new game to public with full powered PR. We got another chance.” He continued. “This game is more polished than what we released at Feb. So please give another chance even if you played it earlier. You will have a much better experience.”
